Also your two-paragraph summary killed! Expert Reviews for the Newest Albums in Rock, Alternative, Hip-Hop, EDM, and More . there was no way i could give this less than a 3. I’d be impressed if he popped out of the womb with the metal mask and the ridiculous rap skills he has now. tbh, i wont be listening to the album much as a whole... but there are some absolutely killer tracks here. otherwise, i put this at the same level as all of his solo projects (i pretty much rate them all at a 3.5)... whereas madvillainy is a near classic, and dangerdoom is up there. Album Rating: 3.5damn good review. to an insurgent attacking troops with guerilla tactics. It takes a little while to realize this, since the album feels strangely underformed on initial listens: A lot of tracks are one-verse quickies if they even feature DOOM at all, there's the occasional whiff of the overfamiliar (the 500th repurposing of Dilla's "Lightworks"; an appearance of the three-year-old Ghostface/DOOM track "Angelz"; a beat that samples ESG's "UFO"), and the whole thing's just barely over 40 minutes.

Nice review. “Cellz” features a sample of poet Charles Bukowski reading his poem “Dinosauria, We” over a B-horror movie ready soundtrack full of blaring horns and heavy timpani. album absolutely did not blow... i can understand those that consider it average via some lazy beats and discontinuity, but there's no way it sucked in any way. Front paged on RYM, Kingsoby is taking over the internet! 3.5 great. Review Summary: A mixed bag, King Geedorah’s latest is as lyrically brilliant as ever. ", Yeah, Born Like This is still pretty funny; anyone who's amused by the kinds of strange linguistic and lyrical parallels and internal rhymes nobody else would think of has a good repertoire of quotable lines to draw from. You know a couple of my friends are big Doom fans and we were listening to it last night and while they liked it, they sorta said it was his commercial attempt with appearances and stuff like that. definitely not going to be listening to this much. Album Rating: 3.5thanks After cycling through aliases including Viktor Vaughn, King Geedorah, Zev Love X, Metal Fingers and MF Doom, he’s settled (maybe) on a name inspired by the track “All Caps” off of Madvillainy, his sublime collaboration with Madlib. Album Rating: 3.5skyler, i agree that he's not doing much of anything new... but he's still doing what he does well and with just enough decent beats to stay consistent. But there's a stronger undercurrent of bitterness and a downturn in comedy, some of which feels tied in to a renewed malevolence in his villainous guise and some of which speaks towards something more personal. But, don’t chalk up his success to sampling Charles Bukowski, Mr. T and Adult Swim cartoons or wearing a weird mask. Whether it’s the excellent “All Caps” video that finds a cartoon DOOM plunging through comic strip frames, directly discussing his villainy on Madvillainy or his sampling of audio directly taken from Fantastic Four source material, the concept is carried in various forms throughout DOOM’s career. Album Rating: 3.0yeah. “That’s That” has DOOM discussing the funereal practices of fowls: “Cornish hens switching positions, auditioning morticians, saw it in a vision, ignoring prison.” “Microwave Mayo” features the killer line “Hold it down like Shatner to Spock, rapper jocks need to put a sock in their chatter box, the block got lined to VIAC stock, folks gather round, it’s no joke like knock knock.”. Since Im not really a big Doom fan I couldnt comment but I liked what I heard, and didnt see any mainstream bullshit with it. Album Rating: 3.5Good review i agree with this completely. ", And the overall subject matter can get grimier than Madvillainy converts are used to. Stephen King Fans Are Dying to Get These Masks. And on an album filled with great production-- including four superb contributions from Jake One, Madlib assembling some top-notch gritty, noir-caliber soul jazz ambience on "Absolutely" and some of DOOM's most wide-ranging and bugged-out production yet (dude even fucks with warped Auto-Tune and Run-DMC drum machines on "Supervillainz")-- the out-of-the-vaults Dilla beat turns out to be the best. Album Rating: 3.0I love your hip-hop reviews all of them are extraordinarily written. See how this album was rated and reviewed by the users of I’d love to applaud the aggressive, choppy symphony sample that stutters behind him, but I really can’t. Regardless of what name he’s using today, DOOM is one eccentric dude. DOOM (“just remember, all caps when you spell the man’s name”) hasn’t even been his nom de plume very long. Urban review: DOOM, Born Like This (Lex) Steve Yates. Should Saturday Night Live Replace This Actor as Joe Biden? He sure likes his food. Pitchfork is the most trusted voice in music. In that track, DOOM punctuates one of the most tightly knotted verses of his career by making note of those who miss the deeper meaning: "Metalface Finster, playin' with the dirty money/ Sinister, don't know what he sayin' but the words be funny. Album Rating: 3.5kygermo, don't listen to your friends at all... this isn't commercial, lol. Album Rating: 3.5great review. When DOOM does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. The most important “channel” DOOM falls into is usually comic books and the accompanying villain myth (especially Dr. Doom, the Marvel Fantastic Four villain his mask equates him with). The big comic book discussion on Born Like This, though, is something not quite as fun. The more time you spend with Born Like This, the less the flaws actually feel like flaws and more like interesting diversions. on April 03, 2009, 9:35am. The whole track comes together like DOOM being more teenage bully than true villain, resorting to name-calling and homophobia. After losing that one track, DOOM largely keeps on pace with his impressive flow. DOOM’s got one of the best voices in the game, a zany personality and easily one of the most interesting vocabularies. I like this guy so I still need to listen to this. Friendly, but this is just juvenile tough-guy posturing, a move that seems completely out of character. "Once sold an inbred skinhead a n----r joke/ Plus a brand-new chrome smoker with the triggers broke," he spits in "Gazzillion Ear", an admission that partially echoes the same concerns that led Dave Chappelle to take himself off TV and is followed up on fleetingly in "Ballskin": "Chrome grown men doin' business with Anglo Sax'n'em/ Lackin' swing but that banjo's so relaxin'. ("Batty Boyz" also samples a Jeff Dunham routine; between this and the Larry the Cable Guy clips in last year's Jake One collab "Get 'Er Done" it's possible that DOOM has tried to tone down his comedic streak by invoking comedians that aren't actually funny.). In short, he’s one of, if not the best rapper going. He talks about writing the rhymes while “in bed with a chick”; samples include a dude getting upset about “a faggot,” a Robin sound-alike saying “holy homos”; DOOM himself drops some lines about Batman and Robin sleeping together. DOOM’s never been Mr. i'll be honest, even the rapping got kind of old. "Absolutely" envisions a widely organized revenge plot against the entire legal system-- from snitches to police to judges-- where offending parties get their lattes poisoned and their tongues ripped out. Villains don't really die, they just emerge from the rubble even more determined to make the world see their way. "Rap Ambush" compares his M.O. Find album reviews, stream songs, credits and award information for Born Like This - Doom, MF Doom on AllMusic - 2009 - After MF Doom spent a few years off record (and… Album Rating: 3.5I'm with kingsoby, i don't see how this is that different from his past efforts. That led to about three years' worth of fanbase-angering concerts featuring alleged impostors, theoretically planned albums promising Ghostface collaborations or a KMD revival that never arrived, scattered production work heavy on already-familiar Special Herbs leftovers, and a remixed Madvillainy faux-sequel with enough good-to-great Madlib beats to make you wish DOOM actually recorded new lyrics over them.
